Photo Metadata – Software for Rights Test

The standards organisation IPTC has just published the results of a test of commonly available software to find out how effective different tools are in writing, editing and reading rights data in an image.

I’m pleased to see that Photo Supreme, the software I use for managing my photos, has come out well.

About Geoff Coupe

I'm a British citizen, although I have lived and worked in the Netherlands since 1983. I came here on a three year assignment, but fell in love with the country, and one Dutchman in particular, and so have stayed here ever since. On the 13th December 2006 I also became a Dutch citizen.

    I’m surprised to see GeoSetter only got a yellow. And Photoshop Elements that’s an absolute pain to use (I guess they weren’t counting that part) got a green+.

      Yes, I thought that Geosetter handled all the Rights fields, at least in Core (it doesn’t handle the Plus and Extension standards)… Hmm. And I agree about PE being a pain to use. But the IPTC is only considering whether the tools handle their fields…

      I *think* that Geosetter is missing the “Usage terms” field, which is why it only gets a yellow light…
